Thoughts on the Sale: Previously listed with another broker for 1+ years. We identified that the current marketing and positioning were failing to demonstrate the property's high intrinsic value. We saw hidden value and brought in a long-time client who shared our opinion. Even prior to closing we began to remarket the property. We then rebranded it, planted some food plots, and resold it making the buyer several million dollars. The custom film on Fox Creek even aired on one of the highest-rated TV shows on the Outdoor Channel.
Located in the famed Albany “Plantation Belt” just north of Albany in Lee County, Fox Creek Plantation’s reputation as one of area’s finest quail hunting properties goes back over 100 years and continues so today. Fox Creek is also home to some of the best turkey, dove and, most notably, deer hunting in the South and sports big lakes with world-class bass fishing potential. This property really has it all – well-managed woodlands, fertile Tifton soils (some of South’s best), over 70% uplands, 10% ag lands, big lakes, perfectly suited facilities, great neighbors and aesthetics galore. No matter the passion, this large, diverse plantation is truly a “Sportsman’s Dream.”
Fox Creek is most renowned as a classic Southwest Georgia “Quail Plantation,” with open pine uplands interspersed with quail plots and strips and ag fields in corn and milo. The quail uplands are edged by ribbons of hardwoods and creek bottoms, favored haunts of deer and turkeys. The trademark “bobwhite” whistle rings through the early morning woods in every corner of the Plantation. In the fall, quail hunters course the woodlands and fields on quail wagons as birddogs sweep for quail and lock up proudly on tail-high points. Excitement runs high as hunters slowly move up behind the pointing dogs in breathless anticipation of the coming explosion of wingshooting’s most exciting moment, a bobwhite covey rise.
Georgia’s Best Bucks
Lee County and its neighbor to the east, Worth County, share the title of “Georgia’s Top Trophy Buck County.” This is partly attributable to great genetics from the stocking of big Northern deer back in the 1950s, when few native Southern deer were present to “dilute” the Northern genetics. Combine extraordinary genetics with fertile soils, excellent native habitat, great bonus nutrition provided by abundant ag crops, large landholdings, and a unique regional hunting ethic, and it’s easy to see why Lee and Worth counties are top trophy producers year after year. Though Fox Creek Plantation already has a history of big bucks, under the Tecomate Management System the sky’s the limit with the huge nutritional boast provided by 225+/- acres of targeted ag fields and high-protein Tecomate food plots. Already, Tecomate biologists are amazed by the number and quality of bucks, some trophy class, showing up in the early stages of management. In a couple more years, we expect to grow more and bigger bucks than once thought possible in the South.
Water, Water Everywhere
Fox Creek Plantation is very well-watered by numerous hammock ponds, small streams, over two miles of Fox Creek and two large lakes. The Lodge Lake, located just behind the lodge, is big at 15 acres, but beautiful Fox Creek Lake is a whopping 75 acres, one of the largest private lakes in the area. The lakes and many small ponds attract lots of ducks in the fall and winter, providing excellent duck hunting. With management, both lakes on the Plantation can offer excellent bass and other fishing opportunities. Indeed, 75-acre Fox Creek Lake has everything it takes to become a trophy bass lake.
Classic Plantation Lodge & Facilities
The classic Southern lodge is perfectly suited for the Plantation and is laid out for comfort and entertainment. A large living room with vaulted ceiling and hardwood floors adjoins a spacious dining room and recently renovated kitchen. Four bedrooms (total of 8 beds), 4½ baths, a large mud/gunroom and a stone back patio overlooking the 15-acre Lodge Lake and a separate guest cottage with 2 beds and bath provide ample accommodations for groups or family and friends. On the north shore of the 75-acre lake, a charming restored sharecropper cottage with a large screened-in porch offers stunning lake and sunset views and a relaxing place to enjoy picnics and sundowners. On the south shore, a spectacular homesite overlooking the lake has already cleared and prepped for a dream lodge or home. Fox Creek is fully equipped for Plantation management and activities – 12-run kennel, 6-stall stable, manager’s house, tenant’s house, barn and equipment shed/enclosed shop PLUS an array of necessary farm equipment and tools, nearly all of which conveys.
